Warner Bros.

Plus, any expansion pack character can unlock the corresponding Adventure World of the same brand to provide players with additional open-world gameplay content based on that entertainment property.
Additionally, new to LEGO Dimensions is the “Hire-a-Hero” feature update that allows players to sample a selection of Wave 1 expansion pack characters using studs collected in the game.

Players can activate the Doctor’s special Hacking, Technology, Fix-it and Doctor Regenerate option to help him solve in-game puzzles and defeat menacing enemies.

When Springfield’s favourite entertainer needs a ride, players can use his Clown Bike and rebuild it into a Cannon Bike and Anti-Gravity Rocket Bike to upgrade its powers in the game.

It looks like The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes might be getting paid downloadable content in the future. Although Nintendo has yet to reveal DLC plans for the recently-released game, currently unused dialogue suggests that The Great Tripini will eventually ask players to pay real money to unlock new areas in the Drablands, which can already be accessed and is where you can hunt down the evil witch that cast a curse upon Princess Styla. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is available now for Nintendo 3DS.
